About the Image(s)

Image taken with a Sony A6400 camera and a 18-105 F4 lens. The setting were as follows: 74mm, F9, ISO 100, at 5 seconds. There was very little postprocessing done on this Image. I cropped and cleaned up some of the cranes in the back ground.

This is a great shot. I really like the lighting on the buildings. The tall steeple is majestic and brings your eye into the image. Then there is the white border that over powers it all. I'm not a fan of borders and in this case it dominates the image in my opinion. If I were to put a border around this lovely image it would be very slender so as to not distract from the regal building.   Posted: 01/06/2020 21:35:58

Thanks for your feedback. This image was part of my top 10 images that I had printed to share with some friends. The boarder was used as an easy place to list the location. On my European trip, I may have photographed 50 churches. I still have a few more images to share with our group, and will leave the boarders out.   Posted: 01/13/2020 20:19:45

It wouldn't work for all photos and I can see where the border could be distracting or even detract from a photo. That said, I kind of like the postcard look that the border provides for this photograph. I particularly like how you cropped the photo. Hoping to get to Budapest this year and see the church myself. A very lovely night image!   Posted: 01/07/2020 23:40:11

Thanks for your comments. Budapest and the Danube River region is amazingly photogenic. I hope you have as much fun as I did.   Posted: 01/13/2020 20:22:48

I think you have done a nice crop and adjustment to concentrate viewer's attention on the church. I see good sharpness, details and colors in the main structure and darkening the sky keeps the focus on the main subject.

The thick border and the printed title at the bottom would suit in case you are preparing the image for a print exhibition.   Posted: 01/09/2020 15:41:18

Hi Greg,
In my opinion you made it almost perfect composition wise. Right border could be little more cropped to avoid that bump on the border. Nice focus and good use of lighting. Well done my friend. thanks for sharing.   Posted: 01/30/2020 15:26:50
